I vote for mismatched set. On the upper right one, the curves and loops in the ribbon are slightly different from those on the two darker buttons.
^ Foo? Noo.
Closed-up is the ideal, but a bit of a gap is common and obviously it's better to err on that side than having slack even with the laces snug. Don't worry about it. The gap will shrink over time as the leather stretches and conforms to your foot.

^ You're aware of AE's Fifth Street boot, right? Didn't make the regular lineup this season, due I guess to being a bit short up the ankle for some people's tastes. But it's available as a special order.
Very interesting to compare the Park Av and the Soho. From their description of the lasts you wouldn't necessarily know that the Soho is the sleeker shoe. The Soho has 5 eyelets vs 6 for the PA, and less room for the eyelets means more room for a longer toe cap. I think the PA toe cap looks a tad stubby. So there's that in addition to the last shape.
I picked up a charcoal Alan Flusser cord jacket in that price range at SteinMart a year+ ago. They carry Flusser's lower-price line, but I don't know whether that jacket is still in the lineup.
